In the world of jewelry casting, one name stands out – Robin Hafner, the visionary behind Kalman Hafner, Germany's premier Fairmined & Fairtrade licensed casting house. 

Robin Hafner, the CEO of Kalman Hafner, has grown up in the so-called gold city Pforzheim and started working at Kalman Hafner right after he finished his university degree. His visionary leadership has propelled Kalman Hafner into becoming a global casting house with clients spanning the entire world. 

Only recently, Robin's commitment to ethical practices and sustainability has set a new standard in the casting domain. He is steering Kalman Hafner towards an increased percentage of Fairmined & Fairtrade Gold in their operations. This commitment not only reflects a conscientious approach to sourcing materials but also contributes to the global movement for ethical and responsible business practices.

The collaboration of Kalman Hafner with Fairever signifies Robin's dedication to providing clients with not just high-quality casting services but also the option to choose environmentally friendly and socially responsible materials. This shift towards sustainability also aligns with the growing demand for ethically crafted jewelry in the industry.

In 2023, the major German TV channels ZDF and arte visited Robin to document the first casting made with Fairmined Gold for a documentary about responsible sourcing in the jewelry industry.
